Rita Crane Photography: Cote D'Azur / Mediterranean / fishing village / stone houses / rooftops / Old Town Menton, French Riviera

[Best seen on black. Click on photo!] Reposting this lovely scene from the French Riviera.

 

This ancient fishing village is nestled against a hillside near the French border with Italy. The Old Town was in shadow, except for the beautiful St. Michael's basilica towers which glowed in the last rays of the late afternoon sunlight. (Taken with my first digital camera, the Olympus Camedia 3.2 several years ago, on my first trip to Menton in 2002!)

 

C'etait l'apresmidi presqu' au coucher du soleil, donc Menton la vielle ville etait dans l'ombre, mais les tours du beau Basilque St. Michel etaient illumine par les derniers rayons du soleil. La photo faite avec mon petit Olympus Camedia 3.2. Since taking this picture, I've returned to Menton twice. I love this area of France!
